What happens when two of the fiercest minds of British TV come face to face? What will it be like when Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) and The Doctor (Matt Smith) meet and head off into the universe together? Some very enterprising video producers have put together what they think that would look like. And warning, this is very SFW, so none of your potential fan-fic fantasies come true. (more…)

‘Who’ News! More Rumors About John Hurt’s Role, Billie Piper Talks 50th, “Nightmare in Silver” Clips, and More!
